Utah Jazz reveal purple ’90s throwback Jerseys and tease even more uniform combinations

The Utah Jazz Friday's announcement of new jerseys for the team to match their new color scheme was a major step forward in franchise history.

The primary colors for next season will be black, yellow, and white. However, there was a lot of nostalgia in the announcement as three purple jerseys were announced — two of which won't be worn until 2023-24.

Utah's video announcement about the new uniform set is focused on the return of purple mountain uniforms for the 2022-23 seasons.

Utah teased a new purple Mountain uniform and a classic jersey to match the Jazz jerseys from New Orleans when they first moved to Utah.

Jazz website states that the black and white uniforms represent the black keys and white keys of a piano, an important element in Jazz history. The spotlight for the greatest performers in history is represented by the yellow jersey. It's a reference to Utah's willingness to be in the spotlight while everyone else is watching.

Utah's white uniform has the note logo and the number underneath. They have worn this style as statement jerseys in the past, in both yellow or green. This jersey has yellow trim at the collar and shoulders which the others do not.

Basic in design, the yellow and black uniforms have basic colors. The yellow set has “JAZZ” written in black in all caps and enlarged black numbers across the front. The black uniform includes “UTAH” in all camps, as well as enlarged yellow numbers.

Jazz revealed two new courts in the next season along with new uniforms. The emphasis was, as usual with the uniforms on the purple.

The court will match Utah's purple mountain jerseys with paint colors and baselines in purple, with the familiar purple mountain logo at center court.

In the meantime, the primary court will feature black baselines as well as a black paint with yellow markings. The Utah Jazz logos at the end of the court will be in yellow. A black note logo will be featured at half-court. A larger, chrome note logo can also be seen at both the top and bottom courts.

The Jazz claim that the wood paneling on the primary court will have an unusual feature: it will be angled instead of horizontal, and flow in tandem with the Note to create incredible symmetry.
